The administration of Gov. Kathy Hochul on Monday continued to take shape as she appointed new advisors for housing, public safety and economic development, her office announced.

Tania Dissanayake, a former director of the New York City mayor's office of legislative affairs, will become the deputy secretary for housing. Marcos Gonzalez Soler, who most recently was a director at the Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice, will become public safety secretary.

And James Katz, a former deputy Manhattan borough president, will become deputy secretary for economic development and workforce.

Hochul took office in August, replacing Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and has since made a series of appointments to fill vacancies in her cabinet of department leaders as well as the advisors within the governor's office itself.

"As we make our comeback from the COVID-19 pandemic, I am committed to appointing the most dedicated and qualified public servants to work with me in delivering results and solving problems for New Yorkers," Hochul said. "Tania Dissanayake, Marcos Gonzalez Soler, and James Katz bring a wealth and diversity of experience to my administration and I am proud to appoint them for the tremendous talent they will bring to bear in service to the people of New York State."
